Gawai is a harvest festival by the Sarawak state indigenous people. primarily the Bidayuh and the Ibans. Families gather at their native homes (Kampong) with family. They celebrate eating their native foods and drinking rice wine. Sunday,June 1 we went to President Sator kampong. We went to about 10 different homes in the Kompong. We sang hymns to the families we visited, shared their food but did not share in partaking of the rice wine. Drinking alcohol is a big part of the celebration. A lot of pressure is put on the members when they go home for Gawai. Elder Reynolds has a beautiful voice and rest of us joined in. It was a wonderful afternoon and evening. President Sator kept saying one more home.
